  1. 1. • To be “Well” and Healthy – all three sides of the Triangle must be balanced. • In other words, being healthy also means feeling good about yourself and getting along with others. Health is a combination of physical, mental/emotional, and social/spiritual well-being. The three sides of your health are connected, like the sides of a triangle.
  2. 2. The Health Triangle Each side of your triangle is equally important to good health. By working to keep the sides balanced, you will be on your way to becoming a healthy person. Wellness is an overall state of well-being. It involves doing you best in all three sides of the health triangle.

  36. 36. • Wellness is the search for enhanced quality of life, personal growth, and potential through positive lifestyle behaviors and attitudes. If we take responsibility for our own health and well-being, we can improve our health on a daily basis. Certain factors influence our state of wellness, including nutrition, physical activity, stress-coping methods, good relationships, and career success. • Each day we work toward maximizing our level of health and wellness to live long, full, and healthy lives. The pursuit of health, personal growth, and improved quality of life relies on living a balanced life. To achieve balance, we need to care for our mind, body, and spirit. • If any of these three areas is consistently lacking or forgotten about, we will not be at our optimal level of health. We are constantly challenged with balancing each of these three areas throughout life.
